General Electric is upgrading an oil sands extraction plant in Alberta with new technology that could increase its productivity by up to 4.5% while helping it "maintain a low-emissions footprint." GE will apply Advanced Gas Path technology -- which boosts operations reliability through innovative component upgrades -- to the plant's natural-gas-fired 7FA turbine, using OpFlex solutions to complete the installation. The plant, owned by TransCanada Energy, has a maintenance-services contract with GE through 2024.
